Coffee Cooperative Partners

Creating a respectful and strong relationship with coffee cooperatives is the best way to eliminate many of the road blocks to providing effective health care.
Our partnership begins when a coffee cooperative invites Grounds for Health to help develop cervical cancer prevention programs in its community. Grounds for Health brings medical expertise, screening technology, equipment, and trainers; the co-op educates the community about why screening is important, provides childcare and transportation for women, and assures that women can get additional care.
